About the Wine
This is a fantastically fine-boned, cool-climate Syrah from the talented hands of James Hamilton - the main man at Golden Child.
He takes beautiful fruit grown in the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills, and transforms it into an expressive, vibrant and excitingly peppery Syrah. Cool, fresh and pretty light on its feet, it has supreme drinkability and offers the perfect little package for a mid-week red.
Really delicious stuff.
About Golden Child
Golden Child is the project of father-and-son team, David and James Hamilton. David grows the grapes from his own vineyard in Kuitpo in the southern Adelaide Hills, while son James uses his wealth of winemaking experience to bring the wines to bottle.
Having their own 20+-year-old vineyard gives the Hamiltons enormous flexibility with the wines and allows James to craft some pretty unique offerings. The fruit is all hand-picked, fermented with natural yeasts and crafted together gently and with minimum additions.
The range is wide, colourful and wholly enjoyable - this is a new Hills producer to keep an eye on.
